Celine Tam – Biography
Celine Tam, the Celine Dion of Hong Kong was born on the 22nd day of November in the year 2007. She is the daughter of a Chinese music teacher Dr. Steve Tam and his wife Zie Minshan. Celine equally has a sibling, a younger sister named Dion Tam. Apparently, the girls were named Celine and Dion after the iconic Canadian singer Celine Dion. The Tam’s are big fans of the well-decorated singer.
Being born to a music teacher, there is no argument that Celine was born with music genes. Her father who owns and operates a singing academy in China discovered that his daughter had a beautiful voice when she was 3 years old. They were both in his car on a certain day and while Steve was driving, Celine sang Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On with so much emotion such that her dad confessed that she has such a great voice.
He began teaching her thereafter on how to sing various songs, sing in various languages, as well as vary her tone while singing. Celine assimilated all these with so much understanding beyond what can be expected for a kid her age. She first went public when she participated in “Let’s Sing Kids contest.” She auditioned and competed in the Season 10 of “Britain’s Got Talent” but did not enter the live show. Tam was also seen on “Little Big Shots” with Jeffrey Li following their 2015 viral You Raise Me Up duet.
By 2015, the child star auditioned for the Season 12 of America’s Got Talent. She impressed the judges (Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell) with her scintillating performances of Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On. Tam was sent to the Judges Cut where she performed Michael Bolton‘s How Am I Supposed to Live Without You. Judge Laverne Cox sent her to the quarterfinals with a Golden Buzzer. In the quarterfinals, the Hong Kong Celine Dion sang Whitney Houston‘s and Mariah Carey‘s When You Believe which earned her a standing ovation from Heidi Klum, as well as enough votes to advance to the semifinals. At this stage in the competition, Celine Tam earned a standing ovation again from Heidi after she performed 2016 film Moana’s How Far I’ll Go but she didn’t receive enough votes to advance to the finals. Thus, Celine crashed out at the semifinals of Season 12 of America’s Got Talent. Though she didn’t win the competition, the exposure it gave her formed the foundation upon which she is recognized as a celebrity today.
What Is She Up To Since America’s Got Talent?
Since making her debut on the biggest stage so far in her music career, this question has been on the lips of many people, considering how young she was then. Celine Tam was a 9-year-old star at the time she appeared on the prestigious show.
Looking at her age then, it was obvious that she had a lot of growing up to do despite appearing and performing so maturely on the talent hunt show. It is perhaps that growing up that young Celine is doing now. We mentioned earlier that she got signed to G.M.E. China as a musician and our findings reveal that she is still with the talent management company.
In addition, Celine might as well be attending school as she is still of schooling age. In a few years time, we all hope to see her as a professional musician as we lend our ears to be delighted by her mesmerizing voice. While we all wait for that time, you can keep tabs with her on social media. On Facebook, her user name is Celine Tam 譚芷昀 (@CelineTamOfficial), her Instagram handle is celinetam while on Twitter you can reach her via @celinetam. She also has a steadily growing YouTube channel (Celine Tam Official) where you can see videos of how she is growing her music career.
